Esso Gallery

June 26th – August 1st 2008

There’s still a couple of days left to catch this show, and I would most definitely advise doing so.

Their press release: So, we all wonder this summer….
what’s so funny about peace, love and understanding?

….And as I walked on Through troubled times My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes So where are the strong And who are the trusted? And where is the harmony? Sweet harmony.

Cause each time I feel it slippin’ away, just makes me wanna cry. What’s so funny ’bout peace love & understanding? ……

from Album, Armed Forces, by Elvis Costello and The Attractions

Mike Estabrook, Daniele Galliano, Chitra Ganesh,
Akira Ikezoe, Yoshio Itagaki, Anton Kannemeyer,
Fabienne Lasserre, Tomokazu Matsuyama,
Christopher McEvoy and William Villalongo

This group show puts a satirical lens on the flaws of society. I loved the work of Anton Kannemeyer. Unfortunately, I missed his solo show at Jack Shainman earlier this year =(. Read more about him here.
